Display Phone Data in Mask

Question:

Our phone numbers are stored in SQL 7 database in the format 9999999999. How can I use ASP to display the phone numbers using the mask (999)999-9999?

Answer:

You will have to write your own little routine in ASP to do this:

Function GetPhoneMasked(byval strPhone)
  If Trim(strPhone) = "" Then
     ' -- no data
      GetPhoneMAsked = ""
  Else
      ' -- we have data, (assume full data)
      GetPhoneMasked = "(" & left(strPhone,3) & _
      ")" & mid(strPhone,4,3) & "-" & _
      mid(strPhone,7)
  End if
End Function

Then, call it from your ASP code:

  Response.write "Phone:" &  _
       GetPhoneMasked(objRS("PhoneField") & "")
